Abstract:Two children, 2--3 years old with developmental disabilities participated in the study. The study was divided into two different sections. The first section included a case study of each child and the second section included an analysis of each child's communication repair in naturalistic and structured contexts. The results of the study suggest that young children with developmental disabilities who lack language discriminated among variables in the environment (i.e., types of activities and breakdowns) and modified their repair behavior to accommodate these variables. In addition, findings from the case studies suggest communication partner behavior and physical environment might also be variables influencing children's communication.
